CGFM® Certification

Calendar of CPE Cycles

One of the requirements to maintain the CGFM certification in an active status is to complete at least 80 hours of continuing professional education (CPE) every two years in government financial management topics or related technical subjects.

The two-year CPE cycle depends on the year the CGFM was awarded. If the CGFM was awarded in an even year, every CPE cycle will also end on an even year (Exception: 1994 follows the odd years schedule).

CGFMs, you can find your current CPE cycle, CGFM award date and certificate number in My CGFM.
